My PS3 hard drive is corrupted. How do I get the PS3 software in the new hard drive?

What do you mean? if you mean that you have a new hard drive, then just install it where the old one is and continue normal operation. obviously, you will not have any data stored on the old drive. If your new drive is corrupt, you are SOL, as you can't "uncorrupt" corrupted data. Actually, i think you can, but it is a time consuming, cost-prhibitive procedure.

My daughter stuck 13 popsicle sticks im my sons ps3, now it won't take disks, can irepair this, if so how much?

You're most likely going to have to send the PS3 into sony for repair. If the unit is still under warranty, you might be able to get it fixed. But I highly doubt the warranty covers insertion of popsicle sticks into the console. The costs could range from replacing the unit tto being charged for parts and labor. Shipping is generally the customers (your) responsibility. Factor about $10-25 for shipping, plus insurance. Nor sure what Sony will cost to repair the ps3 though. Worse comes to worse, you'll have to replace the unit all together. The ps3 doesn't use a disk tray, so it's not as easy as simply replacing that. Damage to the lens could be possible as well. I'd ballpark your repair cost from at least $100 to full replacement cost of a new ps3 (todays prices for an 80gb is like $199, anything bigger is generally $299 and up).

Red light cost me thousand of pesos to buy ps3 cards and now ps3 not there any means i can get my ps3 working and why the hell ps3 design a had drive that cannot be transfered to...

You are best off buying one of the new PS3's, as they do not have the Hard Drive problems that older ones have. I had an original PS3, tried two hard drives with it, but both became corrupted. I lost a lot of data because of this. The new PS3's have additional precautions such as auto-shutdowns (no possible force shutdown) and a better start up after a game freezes (no damage). I have the 80 Gb (Not slim). I recommend getting this version, instead of spending money trying to fix an older one.

My playstaytion 3 wont read disk

Hi there khamanifyre

What to do when your PS3 Has problems with reading disks and you have tried cleaning the disk.

This does not mean your Disk Drive needs replacing more often than not it just needs the laser to be readjusted.

Option 1

You can send this off to Sony if your still in warranty because it is included in there free fixes so they will do the collecting for you, fix it and return the PS3 to you, all for free, but it will take 4-6 weeks.

Option 2

If you are out of warranty its the same process as above but its $150 in cost

Option 3

now a new blue-ray drive would cost around $90 for a compatible one and you may need some one to fit it at a cost as well.

Option 4

What I recommend is a PS3 Repair guide that will show you the simple steps yourself, you will be up and running again in less than an hour and the cost is far less than option 2 & 3

Good Luck

PS3 won't turn on

hi there king

This is more an amber coloured light and in the gaming world its known as the YLOD the yellow light of death,

You can send the console to Sony to fix for around $150 4-6 weeks of waiting time.

The More popular choice at moment is to fix it your self at home using a PS3 repair guide made by a professional ps3 repair man for the complete beginner costing around $30 - $40.

You can see why its more popular and why gamers are turning to repair guides everyday.

Go to GAMER FIX and you will find a full description of your problem, also Sony's details if you wish to contact them and the most recommended ps3 repair guide on the web.

You will get back to gaming with either option

Best regards

Reads ps2 games not ps3

If you have a copy of your receipt, you need to call Sony. They will send you a box and e-mail you a pdf with instructions. The lasers on these units are cheap. I have had 2 PS3's with disc read errors after 2 months of ownership.
If you don't have the receipt or if your unit is out of warranty it will cost $150.00 to fix-
